The Doctor is Soundwave’s official interviewer, is starting with Billy Corgan

If you were worried that Lindsay ‘The Doctor’ McDougall “fucking off” from triple j (as he announced through the medium of song) would mean never hearing his unique brand of musician interviews again, then worry no more. The Soundwave Festival have announced The Doctor will be joining the team as their official interviewer.

Every Sunday from tomorrow, December 21, The Doctor will be talking to members of the Soundwave lineup. Go to tomorrow night from 7pm AEDST to hear his first chat, with Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins.

“I’ve been going to Soundwave since it was a much smaller punk and metal festival down the bottom of my street in Newtown,” said McDougall, “and I’ve interviewed bands playing Soundwave pretty much as long. And now I get to combine the two; chat to heaps of rad punk and metal bands, both new and old, for the Soundwave website. I get to talk to Exodus, Steel Panther, and Judas Priest! And, I probably get to go to Soundwave again as well. Tops!”

Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on how into trainwrecks you are) Queens Of The Stone Age aren’t playing Soundwave this year so we won’t hear a repeat of the time The Doctor called Josh Homme a fuckwit on air.

Something to say?
